Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet
Did you read the manual first the chapter called RECOVERY? here lets read that together now,,, (answered here vast times now) the book is first then the pages. if the PC has not been SLAMMED (with wrong OS) the recovery works if the HDD is still good. ok? and search for E550 and find this. and Chapter 9
I must guess 1st that you have no recovery disks. so only have 1 recourse. the magic recovery key using the recovery parititon. the F11 key, power on and hammer F1 from dead cold turned off, this the F11 key may only work in w8.1 or w10. I think (reading the book is not very clear here) but it implies w7 had Norton Image on it. it means day one you image your PC, then today recover. so if you didnt do that step in the manual then there is no recovery image now. there you go. I guess the recovery partition magic F11 only happened w8 and newer PC. here is your support page, this is all there is at lenovo, we are not them,
if the Lenovo recovery fails, buy windows 10 from MS and install it.

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.

hi there, try booting your PC to safe mode. power on the computer and quickly tap the F8 key. keep on tapping it until you reach to black screen with different selections. select safe mode then press enter. once you gain access to windows safe mode. click start menu then accessories then system tools then system restore. choose a date where you remember your computer works fine then restore to that date.
Please let me know if you need more help.

There are 2 ways you can reset your bios.
1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in your system. Your reset is now complete
2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Your reset is now complete
This is a great troubleshooting step for those of you having POST issues or no POSTing at all. Like other troubleshooting steps, this will not always work but usually will depending on the problem.
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
